I’m love using balsamic glaze over salads, it’s not just pretty it’s sweet and tangy and there’s no need for oil. Delallo makes the best one I’ve tried, but I’ve also seen the glaze at Trader Joes. If you don’t have it, you can certainly drizzle the salad with regular balsamic, although it won’t be as pretty.

  1. This salad is SO GOOD. If you make it in the middle of strawberry season, it’s the absolute best. It’s so refreshing and light. The balsamic glaze is perfect in here!

  2. Very good when eaten right away. I made it exactly as written using a pre-made bottle of balsamic glaze from The Fresh Market. Definitely need to use the fresh mint and basil. I did not care for it the second day, but my husband still liked it. Thanks Gina – your website has saved me many times!

  3. This was just ok

  4. Does reduced down Balsamic vinegar have sugar in it and is it vegan?

  5. I’ve made this salad a few times and really enjoy it!  How do you think it would be with some shaved Parmesan mixed in?

  6. This was very good! I made my own balsamic glaze too. Excellent and very refreshing.

  7. If the glaze has 10g of sugar, how it is Whole 30 compliant?

  8. I made this to eat for a light lunch with a small group. No one cared for it. It was decided that it should be served as a side dish, or as Gina said, with cheese mixed in. It is VERY REFRESHING! A good palate cleanser.

  9. Salad is so yummy I tried making my own glaze but failed lol. I found glaze at Walmart by balsamic viniger.
